Why do we enjoy working in IKEA?
We have a positive team spirit. We’re a diverse group of down-to-earth, straightforward people with a passion for home furnishing. Our company culture is based on the spirit of togetherness, enthusiasm and fun. And we’re always looking for people who share our positive attitude and values.
What our co-workers say
The best reference is always from somebody who has his/her own direct experience. That's why we have asked our co-workers in different IKEA units what they like about working in IKEA.
Our working environment
Working with us is like working with your friends. We use informal language and call each other with a first name, not with a position or titel. You can sit down with your manager or with a director to have a coffee and direct chat. There are our own co-worker restaurant, smoking room and rest room at the backstage. You can connect to internet or watch TV there when you have a break.
